Abstract

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has many regulations for its member institutions and their student-athletes. These rules are meant to help keep athletic competition fair and to oversee the well-being of participating student-athletes. Division I student-athletes in the NCAA who are not receiving an athletic scholarship are the only student-athletes across all three divisions that are not included in academic policy. This study examined academic policies currently in place in Division I of the NCAA and looked at the impact that they have on student success to determine if these policies result in different academic outcomes, as well as perceived academic experiences, for scholarship versus non-scholarship student-athletes.
